Dr Huler and admitting staff, not very friendly. He was short, impatient. The checkout lady was friendly and helpful, however.

I saw Dr Huler and was impressed by his knowledge however his overall personality leaves much to be desired. His initial greeting was very insulting.

Check-On was quick, short wait, Dr was prompt, very knowledgeable, explained my MRI, provided facts and said I didn't need surgery - a great outcome, needed this Second Opinion.
